Good, cheap breakfast downtown?

My dh will be on his own for one meal, breakfast downtown. He's staying at the GN and is looking for a good breakfast nearby without paying a fortune and without walking a long distance - no further than 4 Queens, Freemont, or Binions. I know there is a good 24 hour cafe in the GN, but breakfasts run about $15.00, and the buffet is $10.00. Any suggestions?

Magnolia's at the Four Queens! Fremont cafe is just OK and Binion's Coffee Shop is closed (Boo Hoo).

BTW - nothing DT to walk to is very far. Best buffet is at MSS.

Just about everything is good and fairly cheap at Magnolia's in the 4 Queens. If he wants a buffet, you can't go wrong with the Fremont Buffet for $6.79.

Agree with the Fremont, it's the first place we hit for breakfast when we are staying downtown. Good food, good variety and a great price.

The Bay City Diner at the Golden Gate is a good solid call for a breakfast.

The Bay City Diner is closed unfortunately, can't comment on its replacement, but the prices are high..

I wouldn't consider the Fremont buffet for breakfast, the quality there has really gotten bad as of late.

Magnolia's is the best bet, the ham steak and eggs is my fav there, but all the breakfast options are good.

The best breakfast downtown, IMO, is the Full house at the El cortez.

Golden Gate website still has Bay City Diner menu - so you can compare prices...

I second the El Cortez Coffee Shop. The Gold Spike coffee shop is surprisingly good too.

That's too bad, I liked the bay city diner. the new menu looks slightly more expensive, but not bad at all.
